Skip to comments.Obama reflects on Jews' struggles in Passover wishes

President Obama is looking forward to "a good bowl of matzo ball soup" as he celebrates Passover on Friday at the fourth-annual White House seder, the ritual feast that marks the start of the holiday.
In a web video posted Thursday, Obama offered a brief meditation on the holiday -- which marks the exodus of the Jewish people from slavery in Egypt -- noting that Jews have long been persecuted but have persisted with "faith that liberty will ultimately prevail over tyranny."
Though there are some grumblings in the Jewish community that Obama has not been as good an ally for Israel as his recent predecessors, he still enjoys overwhelming support among Jewish voters. A Public Religion Research Institute poll released earlier this week found that 62 percent of American Jews say they support Obama's reelection when he's matched with a generic Republican. Obama won close to 80 percent of the Jewish vote in 2008.
His Passover wishes don't explicitly discuss Israel but they do touch on the struggles Jews have faced for millenia.
"Throughout our history, there are those who have targeted the Jewish people for harm a fact we were so painfully reminded of just a few weeks ago in Toulouse," Obama

“there are those who have targeted the Jewish people for harm”
Yeah, and you continue to do it Bozo!
Shameless pandering from Obozo; he makes me sick. When he comes on the TV news I can barely stand to look at him.
I think Obama is thinking something other than what Jews are thinking or you are thinking.
I think Obama thinks like them:
Palestinian Professor Says Moses was a Palestinian Who Led Muslims Out of Egypt
Jews’ struggles with his administration?
Don’t say “next year in Jerusalem”
Maximum shape shifter.
Before you even see him he is changing...
He can even change his god, becoming all things for all people... /s
In the same week that he bow down to Pharaoh?
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
I know he doesn't believe Jews can live in Hevron, wonder if it's OK that some prominent Jews are buried there. Shechem, can Jews be buried there? Certainly they can't live in Nablus. Jerusalem, Jews have no business there as Rev. Wright recently remined us. His time would be better spent meditating on Michelle's next vacation.
He invites a few J-streeters and Soros over, or even worse, some numb-nuts establishment types like Foxman, eats some matzo ball soup, and somehow I’m supposed to give a f@#$ what he has to say?
“Throughout MY history, there are those of ME who have targeted the Jewish people for harm a fact I was so painfully reminded of just a few months ago after the creepos bamboozled me when I tried forcing the SOB’s back to the 1967 borders where they can shove their settlements...Bibi..such a liar,uh, am I uh, still on al arabyia?”(fixed)
OK. I’ll say ‘the coming year in Jerusalem’.
